Can I continue to receive sickness benefit if I go abroad?
If you receive sickness benefit from UWV and you move abroad or are planning to go abroad temporarily, you may be able to continue receiving sickness benefit. Whether that’s possible depends on the agreements the Netherlands has with the country you’re going to and on how long you will be abroad.
